For an autumn wedding that oozes real beauty, style your day with a pop of seasonal colour.

Stunning natural landscapes, gorgeous warm wedding colours and delicious autumnal flavours… it’s no wonder so many couples are opting for an autumn wedding. If you’re one of the lucky brides planning an autumn wedding, we’ve got plenty of autumnal wedding ideas for you.

Stylish red wedding ideas

Over the last few years, red has become an increasingly popular autumn wedding colour. With so many shades to choose from, like berry and burgundy, palettes are a lot more sophisticated than bold pillar box red. A red colour scheme is complementary to all those woodland weddings. Team deep red or burgundy with emerald, cream and warm neutrals for a natural, rustic chic look. Natural decor like pinecones, cranberries, wood slices, and wheat perfectly complement this colour scheme and help create that dreamy woodland wonderland.

Dark hues like deep red and burgundy can also be paired with pastel tones for a chic and modern wedding. Alternatively, why not pair a deep red colour scheme with metallics like brass, copper, or rose gold, for a touch of glamour?

When it comes to your wedding flowers, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Opt for red roses or red berries to complement your colour scheme. A pop of bold colour, like plum and burgundy, is a key feature of the 2016 bouquet.

Seasonal orange wedding ideas

While orange may not be the first colour that comes to mind when styling your wedding, a burnt orange colour scheme is perfect for autumn. An autumn leaves wedding theme perfectly complements an orange colour scheme, with shades of orange, yellow and brown used throughout your décor. Style your tables with pretty autumn leaf displays and nature’s harvest.

If you’re tying the knot in late October, why not team your orange colour scheme with a chic Halloween inspired theme? Line your wedding tables with pumpkins and choose seasonal (and colour co-ordinating!) foods like butternut squash, sweet potato and pumpkin. You could even serve cute orange-themed soup shot starters, like grilled cheese and tomato soup cups, to accentuate your orange colour scheme.

Your white wedding cake can feature accents of your chosen wedding colour, with stunning orange blooms cascading down one side. Alternatively, why not team your orange colour scheme with pie? Whether you choose an apple pie wedding cake or yummy pie dessert table, the natural tones are sure to complement each other.

Charming yellow wedding ideas

If you’re keen to add a zesty pop of colour to your wedding, feast your eyes on these gorgeous yellow wedding ideas. Yellow may be an unexpected autumnal wedding colour but get the palette right and the end result will be beautiful. You’ll need to choose your shades carefully – steering away from bright buttercup yellow and canary yellow and sticking to warmer tones like classic yellow gold, harvest gold, and mellow yellow shades.

A classic yellow colour can also be teamed with orange and cranberry for a look that’s rich, warm and a little spicy! And for something a little more vintage and romantic, team your yellow colour scheme with a deep, rich purple colour.

Stunning purple wedding ideas

Purple is a great choice for those brides looking for autumn wedding ideas and style that is both feminine and complementary to the season. If there’s one colour that’s sure to look good on all your maids it’s purple. You could opt for a uniform look and dress all maids in one uniform shade or opt for differing shades to complement each bridesmaid’s skin tone.

The pretty palette of purple and plum can also be incorporated into your attire. Team your dress with a pair of purple shoes or accessorise with delicate amethyst jewellery.

Purple is a great choice for vintage weddings too and can be paired with colours like grey, mauve and yellow gold for a luxe 1920s feel.
